Years of workouts, crummy day jobs and night school finally complete Zoe's makeover from plump naivety to professional woman. Four months ago she met the guy of her dreams, with sexy looks, a successful job and lots of money. She's still incredibly self-conscious of her body, but with candlelight the missionary position, no one else has to know. Then a gorgeous blond drops the bombshell sharing an elevator in lieu of renting a room, and Zoe's world crashes down around her. Drake excuses his behavior, claiming it was just a little sex...it didn't mean anything. Now she has to decide between forgiveness and moving on.
One time world surf champion Aiden Mitchell has been disillusioned by women who only surrender to men with wealth and fame. Six months at Hideaway Beach and celibacy has brought a lot of healing. Meeting Zoe leaves him a bit baffled, however. He's never met a woman that wanted him, yet resisted him. But he tired of "casual sex and a pocketful of condoms," and Zoe proved that one night wasn't nearly enough. But she thinks he's a no account beach bum, and he didn't enlighten her. The last time he'd tried to be straight with a woman it landed him in court and in all the newspapers. But Zoe was the best sex he's ever had and now he's determined they can share so much more. Of course, first he has to find her and prove that just a little sex just isn't enough.
Zoe's self-consciousness and prim attitudes may initially alienate readers who prefer their heroines dynamic and confident; however, Zoe overcomes her inhibitions in the arms of Aiden. In addition, most pop psychologists agree that a man who cheats once will do so again. So Zoe's girlfriend's advice and her own misgivings about his future faithfulness also may strike a false note with readers. Those issues aside, however, Miranda Lee creates a sensual, sexy romance that proves that in the right context, JUST A LITTLE SEX can lead to something very special. Highly recommended.
